The lans I go to are too small to really bear much advice to you on the questions you listed.

Where I can provide some insight is in the types of table top games you should consider. Lots of folks (in the lan community) have been exposed to traditional pen/paper stuff like DnD. If you're looking to spice things up a bit, consider trying out some of the modern board games that are out. I'm sure some of your attendees will have already been exposed to these, but for the rest that haven't, they'll probably strike at least an interest or a few questions. BoardGameGeek has a list of the top board games out right now, some of which you might not have heard of. Settlers of Catan, Dominion, Race for the Galaxy, Carcassonne are some of the most popular. They're flashy, they're interesting, and they're usually under an hour (if not usually under 45 min) to play. They're an up and coming type of gaming that's spreading fast among the table-top/CCG/comics folks.

Edit: In retrospect, I kinda seem like a fanboy for this post, but holy shit they're really awesome games.

Race for the Galaxy is currently ~25 bucks, which is much cheaper than it usually is. It's been compared to games like San Juan and Puerto Rico.

Sure thing. If you want to be notified when it's back on Amazon and at a good price, a great tool for tracking that stuff is

For example here's the history for RFTG.

Seriously, I don't have all that many people to play with, but this is so tempting.

In other news, as many of you probably know, Race for the Galaxy is also only $20 on amazon.

I play mostly with my husband and when we get a chance we have friends over to play as well, so I will recommend a couple of great 2 player games.

Agricola All Creatures Big and Small is the 2 player version of Agricola. Agricola does play 1-5 and I've played it several times with just two players and it is fun.

Lost Cities

Smash Up I want this one to play with my husband!

Rivals for Catan I haven't played this yet but it's probably fun!

Race for the Galaxy Space! That's almost reason enough, plus it's a really fun game.

You may have some of those. I couldn't find a couple I'd like to recommend on the UK amazon so I'll just link to the Board Game Geek pages for them.

Caesar & Cleopatra

Balloon Cup

u/The_Squiv · 1 pointr/boardgames

There's someone selling it for $38.19 and Prime Eligible.

What in the actual....?
But nothing in the description said second edition, correct?

Would you share the product link?

Well, this is the main link on Amazon..

That's weird, i'm UK but when I checked a few days ago it was ridiculously expensive!
Now it's £34

u/Amator · 1 pointr/boardgames

Here's what I'd do if I had to rebuild a collection from scratch for $1k trying to have a wide variety of play styles:

7 Wonders $32.99
Agricola $45.79
Battlestar Galactica $39.97
Carcassonne $30.02
Carcassonne Inns & Cathedrals$15.71
Dixit $22.65
Dominion Big Box $69.18 Prosperity is one of the best expansions; Alchemy is not, but you're pretty much getting it for free in this set.
Eclipse $61.49 It wouldn't be a board game library without a 4X game, and I think Eclipse is the best currently.
Eldritch Horror $40.47 - I love Arkham Horror, but Eldritch streamlines a lot of the fiddly rules of the original.
Formula D [$41.96] (
Gloom $17.98
Guillotine $13.52
King of Tokyo $30.19
Love Letter $9.34
Memoir 44 $47.43
No Thanks! $9.98
Pandemic $31.65
Power Grid $32.27
Puerto Rico [$31.20] (
Race for the Galaxy $24.11
Resistance, The $17.99
Roborally $37.49
Settlers of Catan $37.99
Telestrations $19.99 Awesome and funny party game. My friends and I eventually tire of Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity, but seldom do so with this.
Ticket to Ride $37.24
Ticket to Ride 1910 Expansion $18.21
Tsuro $24.22
Twilight Struggle $49.98
Village $35.47
Wits & Wagers $19.99

That comes up to $946.47; room for a couple more expansions or another game.
